The Gazelle and the Fat Trader both mount Small Craft externally.
The Drop Ship looks like a superb candidate with the possibility of a starship fuel tank on the ship shaped to fit in the cargo space and the drop ship clamping tightly to the starship hull when not in use.

one way around that would be to attach this gig directly to the carrying ship's hull - one of the lbb2 boats has such an arrangement if I recall. this could allow access through a dorsal or ventral iris valve hatch.
T5 use Niche as a perfect way to handle that problem. The lifeboat of the fat trader depicted in LBB7 (trader and gunboat) is depicted in such an arrangement. BTW as far as lifeboat are concern, Id rather have them attached to the outside rather than having to rely on some power to open the bay's door.

Have Fun

BTW, when it come to encumberance, that is at least (I believe, but stand ready to be corrected) as good as the LLB7 Pinace with variable geometry wings. A cylindrical Pinace is in Leviathan adventure

have fun
